And here’s how I created mine for under $5.00 each! Yaay! And it’s so easy that I am almost embarrassed to even call this a tutorial!
Here’s what you will need:
- Paper mâché houses (I found mine at Hobby Lobby half price. You can find them priced individually in the store or buy the set online here.)
- Rust-oleum Hammered Silver spray paint
And here’s what you will do:
Spray several coats of the paint on the houses, being sure to paint the inside, too. Let dry between coats.
Could it be any easier?
Now just add battery-operated tea lights or votives (I used the flickering kind) and…taaa daaa! Needless to say you CANNOT use real candles since they will catch fire! I really love the way they turned out and…I also love the price!
And if you are looking for more ways to use this technique, check out my farmhouse Christmas tree with super easy DIY GALVLANIZED STARS. You can really see the hammered effect!
And for more Scandinavian Christmas décor…this time with real tin…here are my VINTAGE TARTLET TEALIGHTS. They are also super easy to make and a fun addition to the holiday table!
Baby Kitty is just excited that we have finally had a cold spell here and we have had our first fire in the fireplace! And I have to agree…that’s one of my favorite things about winter besides Christmas! How about you?
Remember to pin it!
